We were down for a ball game and ventured across the road to the roundhouse - there was all kinds of activity in the square which was entertaining in itself. We walked into the brewery that is a historical building and enjoyed the tour of facility as well as a free sample! What a pleasant way to spend our time... More

From the moment we walked in to the moment we left, we were treated with respect and as if their team truly cared about their product & our experience. A lot of places begin to lose steam (no pun intended) after doing the same job over and over. These guys seem to have the passion still. Great job 3FG aka... More

Love beer so decided to take the Steam Whistle tour. Great welcome at the brewery with a free sample. Cool building with great art on the walls and Tshirts and souvenirs to purchase. Tour conducted by Vicky who was very knowledgable and interesting and who explained the green ethos of the company. We were also given a bottle of beer... More

We stopped in to try the beer before a Blue Jays game and we were glad we did. The atmosphere was great and the beer even better. Definitely stop in for a beer on your trip to Toronto. It is a perfect place to stop at before a game.

The $10 tour included free ale and a bottle opener. The tour was probably the most hi-tech I've had in a brewery and included the use of headphones and the tour guide having a hands free mike. The guide was great and the staff overall were very friendly. I'd highly recommend this, especially after the rogers centre or before a... More

I was on an 11 hour layover in Toronto and took the bus into downtown. Steam Whistle is in a great location right across from the CN Tower. This was one of the best brewery tours we've been on and the beer is good too. Would highly recommend.

What a fantastic location and the History is incredible; on the business, building and surrounding location. I would suggest going when it is not "the hottest day of the year" you feel like you might melt or pass out and never wake up on the Tour. From the HEAT!!! The tour and the knowledge and the tour guides are Wonderful... More

My wife and I were at the brewery on a Thursday. We enjoyed the complimentary beer sampler and I purchased a pint of the unfiltered beer. The unfiltered beer was very good. We went on a tour of the brewery which was led by a very knowledgeable and informed tour guide. To top it off we got a bottle of... More
